Rosmini Contest Basketball Semi-final

On Tuesday, 30th November, Rosmini played Sutton Park in the semi-final of the U16 Basketball League. We are having a great season so far having defeated Fingall CC, Ardgillan CC, Trinity Comprehensive and Salesian College, Celbridge. We had an excellent start to this game with early scores from Ethan Hackett Kissane [captain] and JJ Jimenez. Defensively we were very strong and kept Sutton Park scoreless until the end of the first quarter. Some poor shooting and lack of concentration in the second quarter allowed them back into the game.
